    Bill Gates' Speech to Mt. Whitney High School in Visalia,CA. Love him
    or
    hate him, he sure hits the nail on the head with this! To anyone with
    kids
    of any age, here's some advice. Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a

    High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school.
    He
    talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a

    generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set

    them up for failure in the real world.



    Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!



    Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will
    expect
    you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.



    Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You

    won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.



    Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.



    Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents

    had a different word for burger flipping - they called it opportunity.



    Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine
    about
    your mistakes, learn from them.



    Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they
    are
    now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes
    and
    listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before
    you
    save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation,
    try
    delousing the closet in your own room.



    Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but
    life
    HAS NOT. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and they'll

    give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This
    doesn't
    bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.



    Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off
    and
    very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that
    on
    your own time.



    Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have
    to
    leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.



    Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.



    If you agree, pass it on.

    If you can read this - Thank a teacher!

    If you are reading it in English-Thank a soldier!!!!
